    Hi,

    When I tried to open my services.exe, I receive the message "mmc.exe - application error" that you can see on my screenshot...

    Does someone know what could be the problem and the solution?

    Thanks,
    Atomas31

    So this happens in other mmc? You cannot open event viewer and view ms help & support?
    Well the problem maybe certain corrupt or missing registry keys.

    On experience with one situ like this the error can occur when the following is missing or corrupted...
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{080d0d78-f421-11d0-a36e-00c04fb950dc} HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\LDAP

    Edit : okay I presume you're upto date on service packs.

    You need to find out what exactly is happening, that is why I asked you to goto the event viewer and check for the error message that coincides with the time of the error. What you already may know is to double-click the error message to see the details. Then in that 'Event' Tab under the up/down arrows is the icon for copying into the clipboard, which you could of pasted here. Also under 'For more information, see Help and Support Center at' is a link to Microsoft where you can get an explanation of the Event.
    But, IF I understand you correctly you get the same error and cannot view this...then you have probably got a corruption. I would first use the System File Checker, Go to Start/Run and type: SFC /SCANNOW and press OK and follow the instructions, also an explanation I found here http://www.updatexp.com/scannow-sfc.html this will replace any missing system files that may have become corrupted.
    When this has finished check one of the tools.
    If you still have errors then try the suggestion in my pm - not included here as delving into the registry can cause you to reinstall your operating system.
    I will also include a link to KB907265. But SFC /SCANNOW should sort you out.
    Don't forget before doing any work on your machine to set a restore point.
